New Video Series from KBU Provides Personal and Professional Motivation for Christian Entrepreneurs

For the past two years I have been a guest columnist for Brotha Online magazine, which caters to presenting lifestyle solutions for Christian men (click here to check out my recent article Kings & Priests in Business). Earlier this year we decided to add a video component to the bi-monthly publication that accompanies my column with further teaching. We explore many characteristics and qualities of successful entrepreneurs and how they relate to operating effectively with the mind of Christ in the Kingdom of God.

Until now that video content was only available to be viewed online. Well not any more! We are extremely excited to be making this content available to you to download directly to your computer, iPad, and almost any other mobile video player for the extremely affordable price of only $9.50. So for less than 10 bucks you can get the mobile motivation that will energize and equip you to grow personally, professionally, and financially!

We currently have three videos available for download: Developing Entrepreneurial Minds for Christ, The Marketplace of Healing, and Kings & Priests in Business. We are constantly producing new content, so there will definitely be more videos coming online in the near future (click here for more info).

We are passionate about our commitment to help Christians develop entrepreneurial minds for Christ. This will be a valuable tool to help you confidently go where God called your business to grow!

3 Ways Entrepreneurship Education Can Elevate Economically-Challenged Communities

I have believed for a long time that entrepreneurship education could be used as a strategic empowerment tool to lift up those in poverty-stricken communities. I’m very excited to see social entrepreneurship strategies being used all over the world to elevate people and communities out of their financial and social distress. Unfortunately, I don’t often see the same entrepreneurial energy and intentionality utilized here in the United States to help those who are challenged will lack of access to resources and tools that can help create new avenues of economic opportunity.

Entrepreneurship education is just as valid a poverty-smashing solution in urban communities in the U.S. as they are in slums in India or villages in Africa. Even more, when entrepreneurship education is paired with Biblical principles, you have the makings of people who are not just skilled as businesspeople, they also develop the morals and character to operate a business that’s profitable and positively impacts others.

Here are three practical ways entrepreneurship education can elevate economically-challenged communities:

  1. Sense of Ownership: Embedded within an entrepreneurial mindset is a sense of ownership. Entrepreneurs who operate businesses within a community usually have a heightened desire to take accountability for what happens in that community, because they know they need that community to succeed if their business is going to be sustainable.
  2. Sense of Purpose: Without a revelation of their purpose and significance, people cast off restraint and run wild (Proverbs 29:18 NIV). When people have no sense of purpose, they lose hope and stop caring about themselves and the people around them. Entrepreneurship education helps ignite the purpose in people to pursue something greater than what they may see around them everyday. Entrepreneurship education is an incredible platform to transport people from where they are to their God-ordained destiny.
  3. Creative Energy: People in poverty-stricken areas don’t lack creativity, they are just using their creative abilities far below the purpose for which God created them. Entrepreneurship empowerment can help people use their ingenuity beyond just basic survival or even criminal pursuits. Creative energy that wasn’t being used previously or being used for the wrong things are now channeled in a positive, beneficial direction for themselves and others.

We’re on a mission to stimulate the creation of 1 million jobs. If you want to learn more about how we’re using entrepreneurship education to elevate urban and rural communities, check out The (Un)Employment Alternative. We’re raising money right now to bring entrepreneurship education to Cedartown, GA so we can create jobs, restore hope, and revitalize that community. We need your help. Please partner with us today!

What do you think? How can entrepreneurship education help your city or community?

KBU Partners with Local Community to Launch Innovative Jobs Program

What is The (Un)Employment Alternative?

This is Kingdom Business University’s (KBU) ambitious plan to stimulate the creation of 1 million jobs through faith-based, purpose-centered entrepreneurship education. We are starting in Cedartown, GA. Help us today at www.theunemploymentalternative.com.

The Impact
The vision of the Coalition of Concerned Citizens of Cedartown, GA – a diverse group including pastors, entrepreneurs, social workers, and city officials – is to use entrepreneurship education as a catalyst to bring social and economic empowerment back to a region that is challenged with crime, unemployment, poverty, and lack of opportunities. They have partnered with Kingdom Business University to provide entrepreneurship classes that will restore hope, launch new businesses, create jobs, and catalyze new opportunities for the unemployed, ex-offenders, and youth who have been unable to find viable work and sustainable income sources.

What We Need & What You Get
Our goal is to raise $2500 on IndieGogo, which will pay for the first 30 participants. The more we raise the more people and can teach. Our desire is to offer this program at a minimal financial cost to the participants, although they will be asked to invest in this opportunity in other ways, such as community service. The amount will go towards:curriculum, facilities, supplies, and other related expenses. Additional funds will also be applied toward establishing a business incubator that will provide on-going support to graduates.

We have some great perks for those who contribute at the $25, $100, and $250 levels. Just look to column on the right side of this page www.theunemploymentalternative.com ▶

Other Ways You Can Help
This project is just the beginning. We aspire to help communities around this country implement their own economic recovery plan. In addition to your donations, help us spread the word. We are more than willing to come to your city, community, or church to talk about this innovative program and how we can create a customized version for your city.

Stimulate Your Personal Economy

America’s economic landscape will probably never be as it was before the recession. Consequently, the career landscape has also changed forever. And while the financial pundits spend their time talking about corporate profitability, we need fresh thinking for helping individuals and families enhance their personal profitability by repurposing, repackaging, and repositioning their professional pursuits.

We are quickly shifting into an entrepreneurial economy, which means more people need to acquire entrepreneurial skills to survive the shift.
“3hrive 3.0: Entrepreneurial Skills for the Entrepreneurial Economy”, happening May 22 in Atlanta, is a career transition workshop with an entrepreneurial twist. It will provide people with a strategic approach on how to flourish with the right perspective and skills in this current and future economic environments. The goal is to equip, enrich, and empower individuals with motivational instruction and stimulating exercises that will position them for lasting success in their chosen career/business path.

Attendees will learn how to:

  1. rePurpose their path in life!
  2. rePackage their personal brand!
  3. rePosition their personal enterprise!
A few months ago I wrote an article about more people needing to consider entrepreneurship as ‘Plan A’ instead of just ‘Plan B’. This is an opportunity to craft that plan. It’s much better to be proactive than regretful.
So join us on May 22. Click here for more information.

3 R’s to Beat the Recession

I know the economists have said that we have “officially” come out of the recession. However, many people – especially the unemployed – are still experiencing recession-like symptoms in their lives.
Here are three critical characteristics to help you beat the recession, whether you’re employed, unemployed, self-employed, or misemployed.

  1. Resourceful: Use all you have in the most creative way you can in the circles of influence that you reach. You will have to work smart and harder than everyone else to win in this economy.
  2. Radical: Be willing to go against the grain to change your situation. If everyone else is going left, you might need to go right. If everyone else is zigging, you might need to zag. Leaders don’t follow the influence of crowds, they create influence that crowds want to follow.
  3. Resilient: Aside from a miracle – which is definitely possible – your situation is most likely not going to change over night. So dig your heels in and get ready to do whatever is necessary to win. Persevere. Persist. Just like a boxer, although they might take some punches that hurt, they keep fighting.

If you would like more quick-witted words of wisdom to propel you through these perilous times, check out my recession-proof, eco-friendly, mom-approved free e-book “Tweet Dreams!

Paul Wilson Jr Featured on The Success Center


I’m very excited to be featured for a second time on the website Rod Kirby’s Success Center, a great resource for current and aspiring entrepreneurs. The blog I wrote was entitled, “Building B.I.G. Entrepreneurial Dreams.” Here’s an excerpt…

“I believe there are many people who will not reach their full life potential working as an employee for someone else. Their capacity to thrive is limited by people and environments that are not geared to help them maximize their talents and abilities. Those are the people I want to empower to make a successful transition from employee to entrepreneur.

At the core of a true entrepreneur is an unbridled dreamer. Entrepreneurial dreamers and thinkers are always concocting new concepts, shaping fresh ideas, considering new possibilities, and asking “why not?” Without an active imagination, entrepreneurs cease to produce creative solutions that are transacted into valuable assets, i.e. revenue-generating products and services.” Click here for the full article.
If you are interested in building your B.I.G. entrepreneurial dreams, you can start by attending the Dream B.I.G. in 3D Live Experience this Saturday, November 21st. Based on content from my book, this interactive, high-energy seminar will provide timely inspiration and practical instruction to empower you to “Live in 3D!” by equipping you to:
  1. Discover Your Dream
  2. Develop Your Dream
  3. Drive To Your Dream

With your dream investment of only $39, you will receive a free copy of my book Dream B.I.G. in 3D, free breakfast and lunch, access to a special panel of B.I.G. dreamers, and much more!

For more details, please visit http://dreambigin3dlive.eventbrite.com
If you are currently an employee or an entrepreneur, don’t fear the unknown path of purpose-driven entrepreneurship. Don’t be afraid to transition your life to something that may be unfamiliar, yet more fulfilling. The time is now to dream B.I.G., live B.I.G., and own a B.I.G. business!
